Guidelines for Submission

  1. Send us your text as an e-mail attachment. Use a recent Word program or a program that is easily convertible into Word. Format as little as possible. Indicate clearly what should be set in italics. Nothing in the body of the text should be designated bold.
  2. The superscript of the contribution: title; new line, (where appropriate): subtitle, new line, by first name and family name of the author followed by the city where the author’s university or residence is located in parenthesis.
  3. An overview of the titles of the sections or chapters of the contribution proceeded by a little star (numerals should be avoided).
  4. Notes should be designated by consecutive Arabic numerals at the end of the text. Endnote numerals in the text should appear after periods, colons and semi-colons but before commas.
  5. Books, periodicals etc. should be italicized in the text but not in the bibliography. The same goes for emphasis. Concepts which are objects of discussion or are employed in an unusual sense should be designated by scare quotes.
  6. Quotations: short quotes should be integrated into the text designated by quotation marks. Lengthy ones should be indented without quotation marks. Quotations within quotations should be indicated by scare quotes. Omissions in quotations or additions to quoted material should be designated by a row of three dots in square brackets.
